Wilson Family Items - Elvin Wilson Pocket Watch

    Elvin Wilson, as a young man, used the Columbus pocket watch pictured below.   Columbus Watch Company stopped production in 1903.  It is therefore likely that Elvin acquired the watch as a gift from John Wilson or through his estate.  An Antiques Road Show Appraisal that mentions the Columbus Watch Company and the date of production, via serial number (276199), is 1897-1898.

    The watch is currently at the family archive at College Station, Texas.
